Lavender and Thistle

So today I carried THIS humongous package on my bike (in the rain) to the post office. As much as I love the cycling lifestyle in Copenhagen sometimes I really miss having a car!

These 2 chairs are traveling to Scotland to find their new home. They will be in the window of David Florist in the new year so grab them quickly if you are interested in a new statement piece of furniture! They would look gorgeous as a pair or individual. 

Both have been lovingly up-cycled with the finest of fabrics and re-painted using the Annie Sloan chalk paint (See my previous blog post- The Wonderful World of Chalk Paint) I used 'Old White' mixed with a teensy bit of 'Old Violet' and some dark wax to give them an aged effect.

The fabric used in the chair to the left, 'Thistle', is an absolutely beautiful Italian velvet. It was the last of it's kind from the shop and I just had to get it. Both fabrics have been hand dyed to create a unique blend of lilacs, pinks and blues with splashes of yellows in the chair to the right, 'Lavender'.

David Florist is located on 39-43 Thistle Street, Aberdeen, Scotland. They are open Monday- Saturday 9am-6pm.
